    Hi Inder, I am right now using Osram Silverstar 55/60W bulb. I have been using the bulb for the past 1 year, and never had any problem. No need to go for any coil winding. There are so many who are using 55/60w bulb in Karizma without any modifications.

    One thing to remember is, never switch on the light and forget when the engine is off.

    I've been using a Philips 60/55W on my ZMA for almost eight months now. No changes made to coil. I've done six tours with that. No issues at all!

    Hi Inder

    Go ahead and put up a 55/60 W bulb. Its a straight fit with no modifications required. Just find the right kind of bulb ie P43t type.
    Bought it from JM road.

    Have been using it for last 6 months. No issues till now
